** x ** ↓ (5/8)x -3 ↓ ** y ↓ (x , y)**

**- 8** (5/8)*(-8) - 3 **- 8 ** ** (-8,-8)**

** 0 ** (5/8)*0 - 3 **- 3 (0, -3)**

** 8 ** (5/8)*8 - 3 ** 2** ** (8, 2)
**Next step: plot those dots onto coordinate plane draw the line through them and shadow the area above this graph

To begin, consider the equation y=5/8x-3. To draw this function, you would have to pick some points! Important ones are of course y-intercept and x-intercept, and x=8 (5/8 * 8 is just 5 - everyone loves simple calculations!). Once you graph the function, return to the original inequality equation, that is y≥5/8x-3.

This equation indicates the parts of your graph where y is ≥ (above) the line of the function. Therefore, y≥5/8x-3 is just the upper part of the graph!
